[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Believe it or not, this is the Moon and not the Sun. I must be getting pretty obsessed with Photography, I actually looked up the Moonrise time yesterday so I could catch the Moonrise. I snapped a lot of shots and was pretty unsuccessful. I finally tried the preset for "Night Mode", adjusted the exposure and they came out like this. If you look to the right of the photo you can see the lights from a radio tower. Cleaned up the noise a little with Neat Image and added the frame.

Enjoy :-)

I like the effect this gives very much. The light from the moon lights up the clouds very gently but not the sky.

Thank you for sharing both: capture and techniques. Your capture is very well composed and it hard to get a good exposure of the moonlight and city lights at the same try, and you got it.

Hi Stephen, amazing and wonderfull. (especially because you have to bigger brother of my C-725UZ :-) ).
just great work
bye alex

This is a great capture, Stephen. The moonlight is beautiful as it illuminates the clouds. A very unusual photo in it's beauty....:O)

Wow, wouldn't think that moonlight can be so warm and soft. Excellent post (once again). I like the moon and the clouds a lot (not too sure about the city lights, I guess I would prefer to forget that people are everywhere). Nevertheless, great shot, TFS.
And happy new year!
